Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise beautiful teeth? Let Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS fill the gap for you and help you get your stunning smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.

A bridge includes two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth permit a false tooth to be held in place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you select a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be produced using gold or an alloy.

Dr. Blackwood will work closely with you to make sure that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no cavities develops in the nooks and crannies.

Dr. Blackwood has been successfully restoring smiles since 2005. Thousands of patients have trusted our practice with their dental health.

Come see us at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS and you can bridge the gap and love your smile again!
